I work in the Memorial Park location. I am one of the Preschool Teachers as well as helping out with the Out of School Care program. My qualifications include my Early Childhood Care and Education Certificate.
A little bit about me
I am originally from Kamloops, BC. I grew up there with my Mom and Dad. I am an only child. I knew from a very young age that I wanted to work with young children. I took the ECE program in Kamloops in 1998-1999 and then moved to Victoria for a few years. In 2007 I decided it was time to move to the Big City and see what that was like. I loved it! In 2010 I moved to Ladner, it was time to put down some more permanent roots. My goal was to eventually work in Ladner as well and I am very pleased to be a part of such a great team at Bright Eyes Academy.
Me and Childcare
Over the years I have worked in many facets of childcare, from Infant programs, Junior Kindergarten, and play based daycares, all of which incorporated a bit of Reggio into their days. I am very happy to now be part of a Preschool program that implements the Reggio Philosophy in a much larger scale. One of my favorite areas to teach in is Art. Giving children the freedom and supplies to be as creative as they want is a wonderful thing. It is great to see how much care and thought can be given to a project.
I feel lucky that I have a profession that makes me happy every day. I look forward to all the fun times ahead!
